Such a creative & quirky little film. It's amazing how much time & effort is put into these stop-motion animation movies. So cute!

The stop motion animation is great. The story deals with grown-up themes like death, loss, bullies, adoption. But the plot still felt a bit too childish to appeal entirely to adults.

A good, heartwarming movie all around. I would say it's more directed at teens than children, but that's up for debate. Deals with some mature subject matter re: abuse, violence, abandonment, etc. but in a gentle way. Best to watch in the original French with the English subtitles; kind of loses its charm in the English dub. I wish it had been longer (without credits, it's about 1 hour).

Our whole family really liked this one. French film but with English voice-overs which are not at all distracting because it's animated. (Other languages too, I think.) Probably not for real young kids, but certainly middle-school age and up through older adults. At once heartbreaking, inspiring, funny, and uplifting. Not to be missed!

This animated film for adults and teens has themes of loneliness, some of the horrible things children can experience, and finding a family, other than a biological one. The wonderful stop-motion animation is a treat for the eyes. I thought the movie had a good mixture of darkness and light, though most of it is more sad than happy. The pace is slow, and to me, it felt longer than its actual 68-minute length. I also enjoyed the quirky short film (approximately 8 minutes in length) The Genie in a Tin of Ravioli, which is included in the DVD's bonus features. My Life as a Zucchini is rated PG-13 for thematic elements and suggestive material.
